Silly question about aspect ratio - do you shoot 4:3 or 3:2?

I shoot full frame, IOW 4:3. Other ratios crop.

The full frame size of (Micro) Four Thirds is 4:3...if you shoot in any other ratio you are cropping!

Your diagram showing 3:2 larger than 4:3 is misleading...in reality the top and bottom of the 4:3 image is cropped off to produce a 3:2 image. You just have to look at the maximum resolution for your camera (GH3 is 4608 x 3456 or 4:3) and then see what the resolution is when you select other ratios.
